Breaking out a new Bag

Posted on | August 9, 2009 | 5 Comments

I just picked up this adorable Namaste Zuma bag on Friday from Marie and I’ve already busted it out on Sunday. Usually it takes me a long time between when I purchase something and when I actually use it. Don’t ask me why; it’s a really strange quirk of mine. But my old bag had definitely seen better days and I was excited to use both the Zooma and its coordinating Buddy Case (which has a magnetized interior to help keep darning needles in place – genius!). In my bag, I have some design projects marinating. I’ll be able to share in 6 months or so :)

My husband and I went to brunch with Melissa. It’s always fun to chat with her and to Maurizio’s credit, his eyes didn’t glaze over too much while Melissa and I talked about knitwear design. He even managed to ask a few questions here and there. I have him trained pretty well. After brunch, Melissa and I retired to the T lounge in Chelsea Market for some more knitting (we both have deadlines bearing down on us) while Maurizio went to the Met with a friend of ours from Ithaca. All in all a great Sunday!

    great bag!! I find that since I toss my knitting into my purse all the time, all my purses have needle holes in them, but that looks sturdy enough to avoid that little problem!

    Awesome bag – I'll have to take another look at Namaste. I've liked those for a while now. Teh new IK sweater is genious. I love the clever detailing.

    I have this bag — in peacock blue — and love everything about it EXCEPT that the magnet has demagnetized several BART (SF Bay Area public transit) fare cards. Beware of that magnet!
    Great sweater.

    I have the same bag in the same color. I love it! It's perfect for me as a knitting bag that can pass as a purse, too. It took the month's knitting budget, but once I held it I HAD to have it.

    Now I want the little case to go with it…
